Wedding by the sea: Weddoes launch their own festival

What could be more pleasing than passing a day in Brighton, enjoying a festival curated by the Wedding Present?

The Wedding Present will be headlining their very own all-day festival at Concorde 2 this summer in Brighton on England's sunny south coast. The event, which is called AT THE EDGE OF THE SEA [in honour of the David Gedge song of the same name] will run from 3PM on Saturday 22 August 2009.

Original plans to name the event My Favourite Dress and make everyone come wearing summer frocks faltered when Gedge imagined what many of his hardcore audience would look like in a Laura Ashley frock, so At The Edge Of The Sea it is.

In other Weddoes-related news, the Big Band Concert recorded at Leeds the other week is going to be broadcast in two chunks on Radio 2 on June 1st and 8th.
